Occasionally, it would do good to read about some testimonies to see what God has done for people other than yourself. I was just browsing some testimonies that people share with us online, and wow, there are some really incredible ones, from hollywood actor who became a pastor, to receiving a call from God himself and now this I'm going to share with you, is rather incredible.


When I was 14 years old I was studying in a convent school at Saddar Karachi Pakistan I belong to a Muslim family. My parents forced me to learn the Qur’an by heart when I was seven and so I did. I had a lot of Christians fellows at school.

I was surprised to see them studying while I always found Christians of low profile in the society. I discussed and argued a lot with them about the accuracy of Qur’an and rejection of Bible by Allah in Holy Qur’an. I always forced them to accept Islam. Often my Christian teachers told me not to do so. He said:” God may choose you as he choose Apostle Paulus. “ I asked them who is Paulus, I know Muhammad only.

One day during our discussion I challenged them to burn the Holy Books of each other. They should burn the Qur’an and I should do the same with the Bible. We agreed: ”The book which would burn, would be false. The book, which would not burn, has the Truth in it. God Himself would save His Word. Unfortunately they were not ready to do this because they were frightened. Living in an Islamic Country and doing such a thing could lead them to face law and meet its consequences. I told them, that I could do this by myself.

First I set the Qur’an on fire and it got burnt before our eyes. Then I tried to do the same with the Bible. As soon as I tried it , the Bible struck my chest and I fell on ground. There was smoke all around my body. I was burning, but from a spiritual fire.

Suddenly I saw a man with golden hair, wrapped in light on my side. He placed his hand on my Head and said to me "You are my Son and from now on you will preach the Gospel in your nation . Go! Your Lord is with you."

Then I saw the stone on the grave, which was removed. Mariam Magdalene spoke to the gardener who probably took the body of my Lord. The gardener was Jesus Himself. He kissed the hand of Mariam and I woke up. I felt very strong as if when someone would strike me, I could not be hurt.

I went home and I told my Parents about all what happened. But they did not believe it. They thought that the Christians got me under magic, but I told them that all this happened before my own eyes and that many people were watching this. They still did not believe and they turned me out of my home and denied to accept me as their family member.

I went to Church close to my home I told the Father there about all what happened. I asked him to show me the Bible. He gave me one and I read about event of Mariam Magdalene and I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior in 17-02 -1985.

My Family denied accepting me. I went to various churches and got more knowledge about Word of God. I also followed many Bible Courses and then I got a ministry.

Now after 17 years, I have seen many people come to Lord and accepted Jesus as their Savior.

Thanks to Lord, now I am married and have a Christian Family. Me and my wife Khalida are involved in the work of the Lord and able to share the miracles God has been doing in our lives.

Even though it is not easy and we face many hardships, We feel like Paul who went through hardships and suffering for the Glory of His Savior, who went Himself through suffering during His walk on earth and on the cross.

We thank God , the Father for sending His Son to this earth and giving us free life through Him.

That's because Islam as a religion always focus on their pristine, fundamental stance. That Islam is the right version, and only theirs is, will ever be, for evermore, amen. They create revival war when they believe some country is not gonna convert to Islam soon.

Nah, that's just extreme. But I'll say that Islam has some really faithful believers. Just the wrong focus on the wrong person.

I was just reading some of the posts that was reported from members, and one of them was the Islam thread. My, there ARE tons of insults being thrown around. I don't know what to do with that entire thread, it's so messy and disorganized :< It's kinda sad because that's not religions are supposedly for.

Of course, I believe wholeheartedly that our God is the truth. But shouldn't they at least try to fight for their own beliefs?

Anyway, someone mentioned that Islam promotes violence and quoted a passage from the Quran, which is rather disturbing, I must admit:


4:89 They would love to see you deny the truth even as they have denied it, so that you should be like them. Do not, therefore, take them for your allies until they forsake the domain of evil [108] for the sake of God; and if they revert to [open] enmity, seize them and slay them wherever you may find them. And do not take any of them [109] for your ally or giver of succour,


So basically those who deny the Quran are not just non-believers, but are workers of evil, and if these people openly go against the Quran, seize these people and kill them, and don't be friends with any of those.

It's scary to think that we'd have to kill our friends who have another religion though. I'm glad our Daddy God gave us a heart of love that we may love all, and love will bring them to repentance.

Of course, I can't comment much since it's not my book to know, so I could have misquoted the context or something.
